Enter through iron gates down a tree-lined private drive to a handsome stucco manor designed in 1932 by renowned architectural firm Carrere and Hastings, famously known for their design of the New York Public Library. Graciously sited around a courtyard, the compound includes a stately French country house and two lovely guest houses.
Timeless in design and composition, the beautifully appointed main house is clad in stucco and distinguished by a slate hip roof, pediment detail and large windows dressed with shutters. A welcoming grand entrance hall and curved stairway set the home’s gracious and inviting tone.
Outdoor lighting highlights the sparkling gunite pool, Har-Tru tennis court and specimen plantings, as well as covered outdoor living and dining rooms. Unified in design by elaborate latticework, these sophisticated outdoor rooms expand entertainment space beyond the walls of the house.
